Look at a map of the Moon showing the Apollo landing sites. Fill in the “Apollo Landing Sites Chart.” 2. Find the landing sites on a globe of the Moon.

How do latitude and longitude compare on Earth and on the Moon. Compare and contrast the six Apollo landing sites. (Think about who, when, where, and geology for your answer.) 5. GEOLOGIC MAPPING OF APOLLO SITES The U.S. Geological Survey is publishing geologic maps of potential early Apollo landing sites on the Moon at scales ofandas part of its Geologic Atlas of the Moon.

The ,scale maps show the regional setting of each landing site and can be compared to smaller scale reconnaissance. This map shows the locations of many spacecraft that have landed on the moon.

Green triangles represent Apollo missions. Yellow are NASA Surveyor missions, and red are Russian Luna spacecraft. One of the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter's missions is to search for potential landing sites for future manned missions to the moon.

The Apollo 17 landing site was unique in several respects: (1) It was the only site that was not selected from telescopic-based geologic interpretation; interest in the site was generated by the visual obser-vations of A1 Wordcn, Apollo 15 Command Module pilot, who interpreted dark-haloed craters as possible cinder cones.

(2) Instead. prepared a ,scale geologic map as the basis for detailed traverse planning. During this period, Scott and Pohn () completed the-scale map of the Macrobius quadrangle, which includes the Apollo 17 landing site and spans almost the entire highland region between Mare Serenitatis and Mare Crisium.

The Apollo 15 lunar module (LM) landed at longitude 03°39'20'' E, latitude 26°26'00'' N on the mare surface of Palus Putredinis on the eastern edge of the Imbrium Basin. The site is between the Apennine Mountain front and Hadley Rille. The objectives of the mission, in order of decreasing priority, were description and sampling of three major geologic features—the.

Left behind at each site is the lower half of the Lunar Module, called the descent stage. It carried most of the astronauts' supplies and served as the launchpad for their return trip to the Command and Service Module in orbit.

Landing Site Description [7] The Apollo 16 landing area, termed the Descartes region, is situated in the southern highlands of the Moon (latitude 9°00'01" South, longitude 15°30'59" East).For this landing, we have selected a relatively smooth area nestled in .The hilly region around Descartes crater in the lunar highlands was the landing site chosen for Apollo The landing site had two basic terrains that were explored and sampled: the Cayley Plains — a smooth or undulating light plains unit, and the Descartes formation made up of hilly furrowed highland plateau material.photography and chemical data provided more information.

The Apollo 15 mission was the first devoted almost entirely to science, and the first to use a Rover vehicle which considerably extended the length of the traverses, from a total of km on Apollo 14 to. km during three separate traverses on Apollo 15 (Fig.
